Manfred is a dramatic poem in three acts by Lord Byron, and possibly a self confessional work. A noble, Manfred, is haunted by the memory of some unspeakable crime. In seeking for forgetfulness and oblivion, he wanders between his castle and the mountains. He has several encounters with people who try to assist him, as well as spirits that rule nature and human destiny. The poem explores themes of morality, religion, guilt and the human condition.
This edition of Manfred is a full cast, dramatic reading of Manfred. It is based on the librivox.org recording, but with the inclusion of sound effects, music, minor re-recording and many small tweaks to timings and volumes.
